A journey along the coast of Norway is incomplete without experiencing Bergen - The Gateway to the Fjords and the City of the Seven Mountains. With its rich history and spectacular landscape, Bergen has been the largest and most important city in Norway throughout most of its nearly 1000 years of existence. This tour is the perfect way to get an overview of Bergen's highlights and flavours, from sea level to the summit of Bergen's highest mountain, Mount Ulriken.

As you disembark the ship, leave your luggage in the care of your driver and guide, and get ready to focus on your Bergen experience. Dive straight into the stories that make Bergen unique, together with your passionate local guide, as you ride on board an electric bus through the city's historic streets.

The journey unfolds through the heart of Bergen, bringing you closer to key attractions like the Grieghallen concert hall and the lively Festplassen, a recreational hub renowned for its fun fairs and festivals. Progressing through the city center, you'll discover various landmarks and monuments before a delightful guided walk through Bryggen, acknowledged as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Continuing the tour, we venture into the scenic Sandviken area, where you'll be enchanted by its traditional wooden houses and ancient cobblestone pathways. The journey culminates at Mount Ulriken, offering a panoramic vista of the city and its surroundings.

Once you reach the base station of Mount Ulriken, get ready for an authentic local and sustainable experience of Norwegian nature and food. From the brand new Ulriken Cable Car and the plateau over 600 meters above sea level on top, you can enjoy truly awe-inspiring views of the city surrounded by mountains, fjords, lakes, and coastal landscapes. The exclusive Skyskraperen restaurant will be serving you the world-renowned Bergen fish soup and a local cinnamon bun, along with a glass of Hardanger apple juice, as well as coffee and tea to further enhance the experience.

After the abundance of impressions and sensations, from sea to summit, you take the cable car down to join the electric bus that will take you and your luggage to your hotel in the city center, leaving you with fond memories of Bergen.
